Attacking Life with Comedic Jaws of Sarcasm. Recovering Dating & Relationship Blogger - Made it to Step 12 When I Got Married.

Do I Seem All That Hard? Is It All That Tough?

Do I need to go to Dating AA?

CL#3 is on his way back from wherever he was for the Hellidays. He sent me a text message that said, “Are you around?” followed by an almost immediate phone call which I didn’t answer. Hey, I was at the dog park and I was throwing the ball for Thora, so I was “busy.” Then I got another text that said, “I’m at the airport and I’m about to take off and I wanted to talk to you before I did. You’ve been elusive the past few days.”

Nothing gets by you, CL#3TextTormenter. Elusive. Shit son, I’ll show YOU elusive.

  2. AsianMistress

    Who uses elusive via text message? Sigh…

  3. Johnny

    its so hard to find a stalker these days. whats your secret?

  4. I-66

    how to get a stalker: start a blog

  5. Sub Girl

    make him sweat!`

  6. Kathryn

    I believe he calls Sin City home.

  7. Velvet

    Anon – Fat Chance
    AM – Uh, apparently the men I date!
    Johnny – It’s really not that hard. Would you feel better if I started stalking you, so you don’t feel left out?
    I66 – And he doesn’t even know about the blog
    SG – Of course!
    Kathryn – Yeah, it’s somewhere out there. But I think it’s Reno, not Vegas.

  8. Sharkbait

    You’re right. Craigslist..who knew?

    I miss you 🙁

    I need your hot greek ass in my life.

  9. Kathryn

    No, it’s Vegas.

  10. Velvet

    Kathryn – He’s telling me Reno. Eh, who cares. It’s not like I’ll be meeting that family or anything!

  11. Kayla

    I don’t know if I admire you or if I am frightened by you. (I keep reading, so I don’t know what that says about me :)). I must be the laziest girl on earth because I couldn’t even waste my time on someone I wasn’t remotely interested in. (I suppose this is because I wouldn’t want someone to act vaguely interested in me if they weren’t). I am someone who thinks the whole “game” bit is incredibly tiresome and more than overdone. I am an avid reader of your blog (it’s a great read), but am totally lost (or just very curious) as to what you really want – a boyfriend or just writing material?

  12. Washington Cube

    I have to agree with Kayla in that I don’t want to waste my time on someone I’m not that interested in. The games bore me and seem stupid. Kudos for being out there and messing around with it all. It takes something more than I could muster to be in that mix.

  13. Larissa

    tell him to lay off the texting!

  14. Velvet

    Kayla – Come on sister! Get with the program. How many guys play these games with women? I’m just giving them a dose of it back.

    Cube – I stay out there for the “just in case.” You know, eventually I’ll come across one who is worth the trouble. But for now, I mess with the jerks as needed.

  15. I-66

    Aw come on… give me a little credit here – in the name of respectable men.

  16. trueborn

    Sounds like this dude needs to chill out.
    Sounds like he already has your attention, why go overboard?

  17. annie

    When you write someday about a man in your life who actually gets invited along to throw the ball for Thora, we’ll know it’s a good sign?

  18. I-66

    Annie, he might as well propose at that point.

  19. Rhinestone Cowgirl

    Hey, man, where are the comments congratulating me on my fabulous taste in giving you such a marvelous gift? 😉
